all know what it is like when you're depressed. so, living without hope really texas out of the picture. then not only are we not trying or contributing, but we are not modeling that behavior for other people. so, when we are hopeful, it is based on one very simple, logical fact, which is that we do not know how things are going to turn now. never know that, no matter how bad things appear. since we do not know how that are going to turn out, we might as low they will have some effect. if we are hopeful, we will be positive. if we are positive, we will be energetic. we will be taking concrete steps to make the world the way we wanted and to model it for others to see. if we do that and enough people see us and follow us, we will be living in the world we want to live in. thank you so much.
